This is a cute book that makes light of some of our current political issues in a kid friendly way. Perfect Puppy is running as a Re'pup'lican and Fat Kitty is running as a Demo'cat'. My 4th grade son really liked the book and it has and issues check list to help you to decide who you might want to vote for and a ballot as well. Gave me an opportunity to talk to my child about the political issues mentioned and how they might affect our family.
Would recommend this book.

Through God' Eye
This delicate and meaningful sweet story follows the life cycle of a precious caterpillar. While navigating through the transition from egg to butterfly, the author highlights an underlying emotion of grief which is eventually conquered with love and and empathy. This story provides a gentle reminder that love is about learning, losing, and embracing the moment - that life is precious and fragile. The poetic delivery and colorful illustrations help bring the story to life. I highly recommend this book to little ones and parents alike. It's a simple reminder of life's beauty!
This book is beautifully written and
illustrated. I'm a Sunday school teacher and children's worship leader at my church. I can't wait to read this to the children there! Although written towards younger children, my 14 and 10 year old daughters also enjoyed looking at this book.
Fat Kitty for President
Through God's Eye is an inspirational book that takes you through the eyes of God in every situation, not just through your own. A must-have read and I highly recommend.
A beautiful story about looking at life in a different way. This easy to read book is perfect to share with your children and discuss how God has a plan for each of us. We may not understand the way he brings us through obstacles, but by having faith we find our way.
I liked reading this book to my 7 year old daughter. It is a nice way to add a little sense of humor to the world of politics. For children, we have to find a way for them to connect real life issues/situations (even though they don't have to worry about them just yet) with things that they connect with. Using cats and dogs is a great way to help children understand something such as presidential elections, because just like our presidents and cats and dogs, not everybody likes or believes the same things!
Fat Kitty and Perfect Puppy run for President and you can join in the democratic process too! Learn about the issues, the pros and the cons, Then cast your vote. I've cast mine for "Fat Kitty for President" as a great teaching tool.
What an endearing book about the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly. The illustrations are beautiful in soft watercolor which adds to the beauty of the story. My granddaughter loved the illustrations and kept pointing to the caterpillars and monarch's as though they were real. I feel this will be a book we reread often. A wonderful story with an endearing message.
This is an endearing story about what life is like during and after transition in life. Very dear illustrations. Watercolors are very soothing and fit this book perfectly.
The Living Tree

This is such a lovely book. The illustrations are beautiful. The words are easily understood by young children. A big tree protects the little tree, but the little tree eventually grows on its own. I enjoyed reading this book!

Cute! Teaching Children about Losing a pet. This was a cute story that helps explain to young children what happens to family pets when they pass on. Almost everyone has lost a pet and having the pictures and seeing what the dogs/cats do when they cross the rainbow bridge can help children process their loss. At one point in the story it explains that dogs and cats that were sick or hurt don't hurt anymore. I thought that was very important to add to the story!! Beautiful illustrations!
Coping with the loss of a pet. This book addresses the sad subject of losing a beloved pet. It provides the positive outlook that the pet is in heaven with God and that you will be reunited with your pet when you go to heaven. This book also provides some learning activities through counting items and naming colors.

This sweet story warmed my heart. I have lost several fur babies and know the sorrow it brings. Parents can use this book to help children accept losing a pet and grieve a little easier.
Great Book for helping young ones understand why lying is a good thing- love all the books by the author!
A great book that takes the lie off of a child and makes it tangible and controllable .
"The Lie" helps children understand what it can feel like to think about telling a lie and why it might not be the best choice.The pictures are fun, creative and the language is delightful.
This book is a cute way of showing kids that not everyone or everything can work in the same ways.
It was catchy and repetitive so kids can join in while reading, I find myself saying "I do not like this" all the time.
The Purple Dragonfly
This is the kind of book that any parent or grandparent will find hits close to home. While it provides food for thought for the child, it is the bittersweet aspect of raising your children and lovingly releasing them from the nest. Gorgeous illustrations.
The Purple Dragonfly is a book about a mommy dragonfly who always took care of her young, until one day they are grown and she is alone. In this book, she learns she will always be "mom" to them, but at the same time, learns to have her own individuality.
I really loved the colorful illustrations. The story tore at my heartstrings. Made me tear up a little, but in a good way. Definitely worth reading, especially if you're facing having to let your child go and soar its wings.

Fat Kitty Visits New Hampshire
This book is funny and clever. It's a good story for both adults and children. It has a unique feel to it. I love it.
A great book to help learn about the state of NH. Written with humor as kitty travels around the state letting the reader know different facts.
It was a cute book. I learned a lot about New Hampshire with the kitty in the story. The cat was cute.
